Wondee has been around for as long as I can remember. I used to fancy their dishes many years ago. Now it seems their food and service has gone downhill. With so many places to choose from on 9 Ave... I'll choose another place.

I am a huge fan of Thai food, epecially Pad kee Mao... a simple but very spicy/tasty/fragrant dish. I have tried this at various restaurants in/outside the city, and have never come across a blander version. First of all I doubt it had salt let alone chilli or fresh basil. Also the vegetables used were brocolli and zucchini and I am pretty positive that these vegetable are not part of the local recipe. All in all I could not find one redeming part of the whole experiance.... I guess they do give you a decent amount of food for the amount charged.

I have finally given up looking for a Thai place in the neighborhood, because Wondee Siam is reliably excellent. Quick, pleasant service in the restaurant. Speedy delivery. Great flavors and when I ask for seriously spicy food it comes pleasantly searing. Try the Pad See Eu noodles.

I'm Thai and I think this is the closest u can get if u want to have a very authentic Thai food. Maybe lots of ppl here are not familiar with this style of cooking because there has been many Thai restuarants, who'd adapt the flavor to fit "American style" I just moved to NY and was very dissapointed by various famous Thai restuarants, which many said they were the best. Anyway, i went there last week at their old small branch. The food was great. The atmosphere and service was not too bad. I wouldnt say it stood out ...but so far nothing terrible happen. If there are some Thai ppl come to visit and would like to eat Thai food, I'd definitely take them to this restuarant.

The old saying that hole-in-the-wall restaurants have great food, holds true with this place. It's definitely authentic thai food. If you're going for someplace romantic, then this is not the place to go - if you're looking for a very casual place and good food - then this is the place to go.

I did takeout, but I fully understand why this restaurant garnered only 2 stars for atmosphere: it is little more than a hole in the wall, and given the location of the front door, the cashier and the kitchen, eating there must be a jostling experience. As for the food, it did not impress me at all. I ordered Pad Kra Tiam, a fairly tame dish, expressly to avoid the potential nuclear threat that often exists at Thai joints. Usually, Thai restaurants manage to respond with food that is flavorful but not so spicy as to necessitate medical treatment. Wondee failed. The dish was simply bland and charmless. The only flavor that shone through was the oil in which the pork and veggies had been fried. With so many other Thai options in Hell's Kitchen, I know I will not be returning.
